Snoopy has a great point. We should enjoy each day on its on merits. Instead of waiting on a vacation or a destination, we should find happiness in each Sunrise and sunset 🌅

That’s my new motto… Instead of YOLO (You only live once) Its YODO (You Only Die Once)!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Here’s a #throwbackthursday picture that’s near and dear to my heart ❤️ My son (also my youngest uniformed employee 😊). He Loved flowers as a child! And he still does… We got this picture of him in a large grouping of Coneflowers. They are still one of his favorites. 

My boy taught me a LOT about “Stopping to smell the roses”… Cone flowers in this case 😊 I came across this one and had to use it for today’s Throwback Thursday Picture ❤️

Throwback Thursday is always a good day! I hope you enjoy yours!

Throwback Thursday…

How time flies! Both of these kids are young adults now! One in college full time and the other a part time college man. Both are very intelligent, special people! I came across this picture and just had to share it 😊

2 special kids that have grown up on us in the blink of an eye 👁

Time goes by so quickly… This seems like yesterday, but it has been many years now. This is my offering for #throwbackthursday !

We Are Only 10 Days From Mother’s Day! Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

There’s one thing that crosses all boundaries,  even religion & politics- Everyone Loves their Mom! Moms special day is coming up soon, Next Sunday is Mother’s Day! A day none of us wants to forget!

Mother’s Day is a yearly celebration honoring “Mom”… It’s celebrated the world over & most people say Happy Mothers Day with Flowers! Roses in particular 🌺

Don’t limit yourself to one day to tell your mother that you love her of course- But, don’t miss this one 😊

As usual, we are stocked up with beautiful flowers and gifts for Mom! Getting her a Rose bush or a Hydrangea for her Garden means so much more than just some cut flowers… She will plant it and care for it and enjoy your gift for years and years to come ❤️

We have a HUGE selection of Roses, Shrubs, Annuals & Perennials for Mother’s Day gifts. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

The clock is ticking ⏱ This is my reminder to you – Don’t forget Mom…

Sunday Reflections…

I love this poem…

Pondering Upon The Rose On A Sunday Morning…

The symbol of love
When giving in love a rose speaks for itself
The beauty is picturesque
The scent it gives lasting for ever

The rose never seen without her thorns
Still who can not feel happiness when a rose is seen or given?
Even for a brief minute, a second the rose brings a smile
Or perhaps a small sigh of delight

If one were to think upon a rose…
The thorns… the beauty…
The petals that carry the essence…
That lingers even after it is withered

If one were compare to our Lord…
He held thorns upon his precious head; the head of the rose is above the thorns
His love was known for its beauty and compassion, the rose noted for love
His words and Spirit lingers for eternity much like the scent of the rose

My Lord created the Rose
Perhaps he created it for remembrance of His son
Looking upon the rose I see it all so clearly
The meaning of love
The beauty
An essence that shall always be with me

~ Patricia Gale

Have a peaceful Sunday Morning,

Sunday Reflections…

Taking time to actually STOP & smell the roses is a rare thing. Let’s all agree to do just that this week! Stop by the park! Or, take a walk, or go fishing, or take a ride in the country, or …. The possibilities are endless! The reward will be yours and yours alone 😊

Working and spending time in my garden is my enjoyment. Slow down this week & stop and smell the roses.


“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
– Ashley Smith
